Soap makers get a lot of environmental flack—but Method is different. What is in that hand soap on your kitchen counter? Well, if you are like me—you know the ingredients and approve of them--or that soap does not grace your counter. Of course, I was an environmental engineering consultant in my “life before kids”—so I may be a bit more MSDS conscious than some. I use Method because they make it easy for me to make informed product decisions--even without a chemistry degree. They clearly list all of their product ingredients—and offer me the freedom to determine if their products are right for me.
What about those plastic soap dispensing containers? We seem to live in the “plastic age”—and, plastic product dispensers are everywhere--like it or not. When Method joined forces with Envision Plastics in creating the first sustainable soap dispenser from plastic, Pacific Ocean waste—they made a wonderful green step. They show the world what can be done with our on-hand resources to meet the world's demand for plastic convenience.
Why ocean plastic recycling? Method and Envision reminded me of issues that my current Midwestern-mom-status allowed me to turn a blind eye to: our oceans are a dumping ground. I think many of us falsely assume that our oceans are clean and void of human contamination.
Don't we catch our messes locally?
Method and Envision Plastics show the greener side of manufacturing—and I hope that their innovative spirits spread. Where can you find Method cleaning products? Method products are available online or locally from Whole FoodStores and other national retailers like Target and Lowe's.
